About us

Screen

The Film Place is an independent, part-time community cinema. It is a not-for-profit charitable company, run by volunteers.

We screen films twice a week (normally on Fridays and Saturdays) in the large lecture theatre at the University of Buckingham’s Chandos Road Building. We are indebted to the University for the use of these premises. Since opening in November 2005, we have screened over 700 films to 28,000 people.

We screen a range of films – mainstream, independent, foreign and family films. We have special events e.g. with Producer or Director for Q&A. Our ticket and refreshment prices are kept low to tempt all. Free parking is provided opposite The Film Place.

We are supported by Buckingham Town Council with an annual grant and have funded improvements with the aid of grants from Aylesbury Vale District Council’s Community Chest.

The Film Place is a working name of Buckingham Centre For the Arts (Company Limited by Guarantee). Registered Office: Yeomanry House, Hunter Street, Buckingham MK18 1EG. Registered in England. Company number 03739675. Registered Charity number 1075315.

MESSAGE FROM  SIR IAN MCKELLEN ON THE OCCASION OF THE GALA SCREENING OF “MR HOLMES”,  22 November 2015:

“I wish it had been possible for me to attend the Gala evening because clearly the Film Place is the place to be! During the screening, I shall be helping out at the Evening Standard Awards in London.

As you are about to discover, the script of MR HOLMES is imaginative and full of appropriate mystery, almost as if Conan Doyle had been involved. The great joy for me was working with such a talented cast of beloved colleagues, particularly the director Bill Condon.

I do hope you have a successful and happy time and that you enjoy the film as much as I did making it.

Happy Anniversary!

Yours, Ian McKellen”
